Viewport Helper

Date Updated: 

This is a simple script to help viewport controls when working in max.I have tested it with max 8 but i don't see why it should not work in versions below. This script opens up a dialog to help switch between the different views without hotkeys - and using the drop down menu - i have now added more buttons for faster work.

Additional Info: 

i sometimes work in expert mode (when animating) - and i found it quite annoying when i had to switch views - especially
because there was no quick key for the back and right views - i developed this to make work easier
and faster

Added original 2d views to the script.
-Version 0.3

The perspective and user buttons now enable have zoom extents all on to stop the glitch in the rotation
